And yet here he is, dazzling wide-eyed Auburn football players with his tales of perseverance and success and explaining that, yeah, golfers may not be as "athletic" as football players, one Auburn Tiger can still learn from another Auburn Tiger:

A touching moment, indeed.

Dufner won the PGA Championship on Sunday, his first career major title, giving him a legacy much greater than just the photo above. He has been on a trail of awesome ever since. His wife was thrust into the spotlight, he slept with the Wanamaker Trophy, and he even got a new puppy.
